bodybuilder by the name of reg park, and i read that he became hercules in the movies, and how much he trained and how he won the mr. universe contest three times and all that, to me, this was the road map for me to go and do exactly the same thing. to train five hours a day, become mr. universe. that's of course a lot of working out to become mr. universe but i progressed and had so much talent and so much will and so much fire in my belly that i became at the age of 20 the youngest mr. universe ever. from then on, i won one world championship title after the next and basically dominated but it was having that vision in front of me and chasing that vision. when i trained in the gym and everyone was running around huffing and puffing, i had a smile on my face in the gym. i couldn't wait to do the next squat with 400 pounds. i couldn't wait to do the next 20 chinups. i couldn't wait to do the next 500 situps because to me, that meant one step closer to achieving that vision and turning that vision into reality. >> can you still do the 400 pound stuff? >> i cannot do the 400 pound stuff anymore.
